Benson Chong founded SWELL with his partners in 2011 – a practice focused on art direction and the design of printed matter – working closely with artists, writers and institutions in creating honest graphic work. Benson’s work has received recognition across various international stages such as Design and Art Direction Awards (DNAD), American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), Type Directors Club New York (TDC) and Asia Pacific Design (APD).
He is a firm believer in the philosophy of “theory & practice”, pedagogy is an essential element in solidifying his approach towards design as a practice. Teaching has granted him a great sense of fulfilment and motivation, which has developed into a passion over the years. Equipped with over 8 years of teaching experience across various art institutions, he brings to the table a holistic approach towards design education.
